OHL, a Brentwood, Tenn.-based global third-party supply chain solutions provider, has formed a strategic joint venture with Tercex Logistica Internacional, with locations in Rio de Janeiro, Santos and Viracopos, and headquartered in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“OHL’s network offers our customers exactly what they need – the availability of global door-to-door transportation via a single operating platform, and the reliability of a mature, confident organization,” says Wagner Brito, chief executive officer of Tercex.

Tercex’s capabilities include air and ocean transportation, customs house brokerage, pickup and distribution, and project logistics services. Effective immediately, Tercex Logistics will begin doing business as OHL Tercex International S.A., dba OHL International.

“OHL is in the business of creating truly global supply chains for its customers,” says Patrick Moebel, president of OHL Global Freight Management and Logistics. “A key market for any global supply chain provider is Brazil. Tercex offers the ideal network as a gateway to and from the Latin American market for our customers. We’re joined by some of the best names in the industry, and we’re really excited to start integrating our services.”
